Chrysler Group LLC has suspended without pay one of the organizers of last week's demonstration at its Warren manufacturing complex.
Alex Wassell, a member of a dissident labor group called the Committee for the Eight Hour Day and Overtime Pay, helped organize a protest on Thursday against a controversial new work schedule that would require many employees to work Saturdays and require others to alternate between day and night shifts.
"He violated one of our codes of conduct. He engaged in an activity constituting, or appearing to constitute, a conflict with the interest of the company," said Chrysler spokeswoman Jodi Tinson. "He released information that was not authorized relating to quality."
